Panting by the blue waterbrooks of purity
The heart so innocent
In casual trust it takes refreshment there
Drinking in its own image with tiny eyelid flutters.
Breathing deep the serene wonder all around it
The breezy tree lined pathways of love
The birds chirping out clear delicate notes of happiness
And the heart that bides there never leaves this place
In hope it dwells there still.
With the harmless soul of a dove
It overperches places it can never go
And sings of things that can never be.
Oftimes in its lonliness
It reaches out beyond itself
Trying in vain to capture a wish.
And tho it doesn't always receive the boon craved
When it does a glass-shattering sigh is heard
As all the fragile painful memories of the past
Break apart and fall into the timeless sea of forgetfulness.
From then on life doesn't hurt anymore...
And the miracle released becomes a butterfly
As forever begins.
